Ego Development Through Induced Programming

Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 5)


Studies of systems with a high level of behavior can be grouped around two distinct points of interest:
  1. 1.

    Interest in the behavior: Observations of the behavior, identification of the behavioral characteristics, laws governing the behavior, and relations between the behavior and the environment are in the main stream. A selection of recent origin is [3].

  2. 2.

    Interest in processors and processes: Processors and algorithms that generate a behavior, and an identification underlying their structural characteristics are in the main stream, with the motivating force being an explanation (in the form of a model, simulation, hardware configuration) as to what kind of a system configuration is, or is not, able to produce the behavior under consideration. Typical example is [2].
